Education

Knowing God

The Scriptures teach that Christians are transformed by the renewing of our mind. That is, God changes us to be like Christ by changing what we think and how think. Consequently, the gospel ministry of our church seeks to lead the whole person with emphasis upon the mind. In keeping with that, we see education as a life-long responsibility of all God’s people.

It is every Christian’s duty to learn of Christ, to know Christ more deeply, for “in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily” (Colossians 2:9). If we are to glorify our great God and enjoy Him forever, then we must learn of Him and know His character and will.

“Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.” —Jeremiah 9:23, 24

Worship

Christ is abundantly, sufficiently, and profoundly revealed to His people in the sacred ordinances of worship. And so worship is our highest calling and the most important ministry of our church. It is in those spiritual exercises of private, family, and especially congregational worship that we find the glory of God manifested to His people and His knowledge most clearly displayed.

Sabbath School

Further, we seek to encourage the pursuit of the knowledge of God through the Sabbath School. It is our aim here to provide resources for growth in grace at every level of spiritual development. We desire the Sabbath School to be an aid to the spiritual development of all the members of Christ’s flock, from the youngest to the oldest.

Gospel Ministry

The whole of the gospel ministry is a stewardship of the mysteries of God. This ministry is not an independent charge, but a sacred calling involving mutual accountability amongst the Elders who exercise “that authority Christ hath left in His Church.” This accountability includes not only the practice of ministry but the preparation for ministry as well. We believe that a seminary ought not to be an independent institution, but a ministry supported by the Church and operating under her oversight. The seminary’s service to the Church must be to provide a well educated ministry, men who are well prepared for leading God’s people in the pursuit of the knowledge of God and wholehearted service to Him.

To that end we support Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, an institution which holds this view of the seminary’s role and preparation for the Gospel Ministry in common with us.

The knowledge of God is never empty of action. Indeed, true knowledge of God is always transformative. It is our desire that God’s people be so transformed by the knowledge of God that they may manifest His glory in every lawful endeavour, in all their callings, in every course of life through which God leads them.
